Thoughts: One of my co-workers kept talking about this mascara. She said it's the best drugstore mascara she has ever tried! Since she's Asian, I believed her and made it the next mascara to try.
The mascara comes in a shiny, gold packaging with the words "Voluminous Million Lashes." It's nothing exciting then again it's not the typical black packaging. Even though it's shiny, I hardly saw any fingerprints on the packaging. That's a huge plus for me!
When it comes to the wand, I'm not that picky. I can make everything work except for the huge sized wand. I have a hard time doing my lower lashes. I did not have problem getting my lower lashes, as well as, close to my upper lashes.

This mascara sounded good until the first time I tried it. It did not hold my straight, Asian lashes! I don't know if my co-worker has curly lashes, but it did not hold my lashes at all. I hated it the first time I used it. I was hoping it'll get better as time went on or who knows maybe I did not do a great job curling my lashes. I made all the excuses possible. I hated it the second time, third time, and so on. I was not happy at all that it did not hold my straight lashes. I wish I was blessed with curly lashes, because it would had been great.

The most important thing for me is knowing that the mascara holds my lashes. Now I know this doesn't, so I had to overlook that and see what's the main purpose of this mascara. The main purpose is to volumize your lashes. Would I say it work? Yes, it made my lashes look thicker and full. Was I completely happy? I have to say no. I've seen other mascara do a better job. It made it look thicker and full, but not to the extreme of making it look like I have million lashes. It made it a little bit thicker and full.
Here's how the mascara looks on me. It might be hard to see the eye closest to the picture. If you look at the farther eye, you can see the lashes shooting straight out. That's after curling and applying the mascara.
Here's how it looks from the top. My lashes are straight and yes, I did curl them. Even though it's straight, you can see some thickness.

* Not a typical black packaging.
* Hardly see fingerprint marks on the packaging.
* Collagen-infused formula.
* Slightly thickens lashes.

* Cheap packaging.
* Does not hold lashes.
* Does not give the million lashes.

Would I repurchase: No, but I might try the waterproof one.
